Tim Olson Moves To Top of Challenge; New Dynasty Orphans Listed

Olson Snares Challenge Lead

Rhino In Driver’s Seat for $100,000 Grand Prize

With only the “big game” left in the 2017-18 World Famous Playoff Challenge, Tim Olson’s AlbinoRhino squad took over first place after Conference Championship weekend. Led by Tom Brady’s 22.5, Olson now holds a 4.1-point lead over the second-place Bobcats, owned by Joseph Webster.

While both Olson and Webster will have Brady and the Philly defense at their disposals in a couple weeks, third-place Michael Dziedzic’s zeke’s team will run out Brady and Zach Ertz, trailing by only 9.1 points. (Dziedzic also has an entry in fifth place with Brady and Ertz as well.) That’s the same combo that John Gifford’s Fantasy Maniacs entry will also trot out in the final game of the Challenge in 2018.

GDF will only have three players for the last three games of the season as it is without an Eagle the rest of the way. Right behind that squad in second is David Hubbard’s meahan at 297.6 with and Giuseppe Liantonio’s Amish Rake Fight’s 294.05 score is sitting in third. Scott Johnson’s Coach’s Crunchers Corvette moved up to fourth with 290.75. Dan Jasiak’s squad slipped to fifth from second last week with 290.55 total points.

We ran four Live Best Ball Leagues at Planet Hollywood this past September, two at the $1,250 level and two at the $750 level. Philip Hooton’s Bullseye was able to come out on top for the $9,000 first place prize in the $1,250 #1 league with a 2663 season-long score. Bill Ezzell’s Mr. Bill & the Landshark earned $2,850 for their 2630 second-place tally, and Naked Boot Legs owned by Shelly Fossum took home $1,150 for third place with 2620 points.

In the other $1,250 league, Peter Bronstein’s Lost Compression’s 2784 points was the top score with Twin Killings run by Steve and Chris Saunders notching 2650 for second. Peter St. Pierre and Stephen Ashey’s Rocky’s Doughboys came in third with 2622 points.

David Dodds and Clayton Gray’s FBG cashed $4,500 for winning the $750 Best Ball League #1 with a total of 2742 points. The Sandusky Skediots owned by Mark Behrens placed second for $2,000 totaling 2633, and Bryan Vogel’s BVTDB won $1,150 for third with his team’s 2572-point performance.

Over in $750 Best Ball #2, the make fantasy great again team entered by Don Metter finished ahead of all other comers, including second-place Follow Me owned by Mark Moyer. Steve and Chris Saunders also cashed in this league as well, as their Double Trouble team placed third.

These four leagues held their drafts live at Planet Hollywood and featured 28 rounds with no in-season management. We’ll be bringing them to you all live again this season with these four teams looking to repeat their successes in 2018.

Challenge Enters Week 2; New Dynasty Orphans Listed

Wild Card Weekend in the Books

ErikH Leads Chase For $100K Entering Divisional Games

Sitting in first place after the opening weekend of the 2017-18 World Famous Playoff Challenge, is GDF-II owned by ErikH. Led by Derrick Henry’s 27.1, GDF-II also got big-time performances from Julio Jones (25.7), Drew Brees (25.7) and Robert Woods (23.2) en route to a one-week score of 152.

Since GDF-II lost three players this week instead of two, it remains to be seen if it can hold its lead over the teams just behind it. Dan Jasiak is just 2.75 points off the pace in second place with Arthur Bluntt’s timmy mom sitting in third. Scott Gruberger’s BennyG, Mark Jones’ B229 and Howard Bender of the Fantasy Alarm are all knotted up in a three-way tie for fourth place currently.

Schroeder & Brown Win Varsity Leagues; Challenge Nearly 95% Full

Schroeder & Brown Take Varsities

Schroeder’s 4th ’17 HSFF Title; Brown Repeats as Champ

In 2017, we once again offered two separate Varsity leagues that featured $3,000 entries in total points formats. And after the dust settled in Week 16, it was Chad Schroeder and Brody Brown’s squads that each took home the two $20,000 first place prizes.

In Varsity #1, Schroeder’s Cocktails and Dreams tallied 2,315 points on the year, which was plenty to defeat Ryan Thurlow’s JV entry that scored 2,182. Schroeder’s lead was significant enough that he was able to weather two zeroes in Week 16 from Michael Crabtree and Alshon Jeffery to hang on for the title as Le’Veon Bell’s 20.7 led the way for Cocktails the final week.

Thurlow brought home $8,500 for second with defending champion Left or Right? I forgot taking third. Todd Range and Richard Moore cashed $4,000 for their efforts.

Over in Varsity #2, it was Brody Brown’s Das Coffee defending its 2016 title, putting up a 179.95 in Week 16 behind Todd Gurley’s 49.6, Philly’s defense’s 22 and Zach Ertz’s 21.6 en route to a 49-point victory over Doug Bowman and Michael Nolte’s Dezi’s Ghosts. Brown cashed $20,000 while Bowman and Nolte split $8,500 for finishing second in this league as well. The $4,000 third place award went to Larry Weinhauer’s Troy’s Boys squad.

Congrats to all six teams that cashed, and we look forward to seeing how these leagues play out again in 2018!

In keeping with the theme of the fantasy playoffs, it was Todd Gurley leading Tom Murphy’s T.Connection to a 2017 Terminator title and a $10,000 grand prize.

Kruse Takes $10K Super Bracket

Yesterday, I wrote about Brad Kruse’s Fantasy Assassins taking home the $2500 Auction thanks in part to Todd Gurley. Today, I wanted to tell you about Kruse’s big victory in the $10,000 Super Bracket Tournament thanks to–you guessed it–Todd Gurley as well as Zach Ertz’s 21.6. Kruse’s 12th-seeded Assassins beat Greg Link’s 11th-seeded Legion of Doom in the final 159.05-125.4. Link still did pocket $2,500 as the runner-up.

Anything can happen in the Super Bracket, and it didn’t let us down from an entertainment standpoint this season once again. Thanks to all 96 players that participated!
